A Southwest Airlines Boeing 737-700 made an emergency landing in Philadelphia after one engine exploded (flight 1380). Unfortunately, the explosion caused the nearest window to break open. The woman sitting closest to the engine was pulled out of the plane due to the air pressure. Her fellow passengers attempted to, yank her back inside the airliner as it depressurized and quickly descended thousands of feet per minute. The woman was identified as Jennifer Riordan from Albuquerque New Mexico and her body was halfway out of the plane during the emergency descent. She was eventually pulled back into the plane and several passengers performed CPR on her. However, she did not make it.
